Any rafters out there familiar with Cross at around 4k?

I've been in there with my 16' cat at about 2,800 and I'd call it mild class 4.

How's it bump up?-Mainly interested in Osterizer but would appreciate any info-
This week's forecast is calling for warming temps and some rain for Maybell, so I imagine it'll come up some.

Thinking of making the journey this weekend.

Thanks

Not sure about a rafts point of view but we ran it right at 4K last year. Osterizer is meaty (but it goes in a kayak), the hole that backs it up looks really ugly, the time between Osterizer and Snake Pit is short due to the speed of the water (so have a game plan), Snake Pit has all kinds of nasty holes all over it. At 4K the boof over the middle looks stellar (not sure you can do it in a raft). Everything is clean till Pour Over City (stay far left). It's after POC that I think it would be the hardest in a raft. At 4K there are some monster sizes holes that stagger the river and require some strong paddling to move between them. There were a few that looked like you could surf a bus in. And you don't really see them till you are on top of them.
